Dear Foodservice Professional,
Versatile, functional, and filling, soup and sides keep students satisfied.
With colder weather on the horizon, it’s time to start thinking about your soup and side offerings. Hot foods are a great way to keep your students happy. Give your students the options of several sizes to choose from; soups and hot sides make great snack offerings too. Keep your sides and soups on a regular rotation to keep your students from getting bored. Let your students mix and match your selections to create their own meal, like chili topped with mac and cheese.
Seasonal flavors make great LTO offerings.
Incorporate seasonal flavors on your menu and keep your students interested in your menu. According to Technomic data, 33% of consumers are willing to spend more on a meal featuring new flavors, and 35% of consumers are more interested in trying new flavors than a year ago. So keep your menu’s flavors fresh and new each season.
